Record home-buying demand along Route 1 in May

Updated: May 28, 2021

The voracious home-buying trend we have been seeing in Hyattsville, Riverdale, College Park and our other Route 1 communities has only accelerated this last month. People are on the move and their demand for buying houses is driving up the prices and speeding up how fast houses sell.
